Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) is a campus-wide survey of all degree-seeking undergraduates at the University of Iowa.

SERU provides an extensive overview of the student experience, gathering information on academic and community engagement, experiences in their major, overall satisfaction, and perceived campus climate for diversity.  This site provides information about the survey for students and departments, and also reports on the data.

SERU gives the university one more important way to hear from students -- and when we hear from students, everybody benefits.




UI is committed to preparing students to be engaged participants and leaders in a culturally diverse world. We offer many opportunities to support student achievement of this outcome, but students vary widely in how extensively they participate in these kinds of experiences.
